3DS demos debut with Resident Evil: Revelations

Nintendo to offer pre-release title samples in North America beginning with Capcom's latest Resident Evil game tomorrow.

by

In October, Nintendo promised that demos would be a part of the 3DS's major November update. However, none have yet been offered. Today, Nintendo shed light on the matter, announcing 3DS demos will come to the system's eShop beginning tomorrow.

Nintendo is bringing demos to the 3DS starting tomorrow.

The first demo in the eShop will be for Capcom's Resident Evil: Revelations. Following that will be a trial for Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, which will become available on January 26. Demos to follow at unspecified dates include Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D and Rayman Origins. Nintendo said new offerings will be available "periodically."

The demos aren't half bad, and they do the job. They just make me want the games more.

I have played with the demo, and I loved it! It is more like original Resident Evil, and it is quite scary in 3D! I can't wait for the full version. I suppose this is going to be the reason for purchasing 3DS for lots of people.

I remember having that demo disc that came with Mario Kart Double Dash. :) I am glad they are doing digital demos now. It is really needed nowadays.

I love me some demos I do.They should be an industry requirement.Oh and uh, just so everyone knows, this is far from the first time you could get demos on a Nintendo system.It goes as far back as Gamecube demo discs.I still have one.It's not like it's some big revelation to them all of the sudden.Pun. I sure am glad I destroyed a couple of Nintendo haters' little fantasies there, lol.

Welcome to 1990, Nintendo. Glad to have you join us.

Should be interesting. I wonder if it's the same demo that was released with Mercenaries.
